Men's physique

This series was created for the athlete who wants to stand on stage with a beautiful beach look. So nicely toned but not too muscular to stand with the bodybuilders. So a nice six-pack and nicely toned but not much mass. We do not look for a bodybuilder in a swim short, but a well-trained athlete with a nice look and presentation. A kind of nice beachboy actually. The shorts may be in all colors and must come to the knee. You can not do bodybuilding poses here, just show the four sides in a good way.

Classic Physique

Classic Physique is the middle ground between bodybuilding and men’s physique.

Classic Physique is for athletes who want to take their muscularity and size beyond the limits of
Men’s Physique, but not quite to the extremes of Bodybuilding.

A classic physique is all about symmetry, balance, and proportion. Every muscle flows into the
next with seamless harmony. No part is too big or too small.

Each muscle needs to be developed so that combined with everything else, it will enhance the
whole physique.

If there is a single body part that is the hallmark of a classic physique, it is the midsection. The
midsection is the centerpiece of the entire physique. Every pose from every angle starts with it.

A small waist makes shoulders and backs look wider, chests fuller and gives legs that outer flare.

Classic bodybuilding

Classic Bodybuilding is a version of bodybuilding for those male athletes who don’t want to develop their muscles to their “extreme” full potentials but prefer lighter “classic” physique. Since muscle mass is limited, special attention is paid to the overall view of the physique, body proportions, and lines, muscle shape and condition (density, body fat level, definition and details).

Bodybuilding juniors – 23 years

Athletes train to develop all body parts and muscles to maximum size but in balance and harmony. There should be no “weak points” or underdeveloped muscles. Moreover, they should follow a special pre-competition training cycle, to decrease the body fat level as low as possible and remove the underskin water to show the quality of muscles: density, separation, and definition. Who can display more muscle details is scoring higher at the contest. And the other matter to be assessed is a general view of the physique, which should be proportionally built. It means broad shoulders and narrow waist as well as adequately long legs and shorter upper body.

Bikini

This category has been introduced in 2011 and is aimed at women who keep their body in shape and eat healthily. Overall body lines, balance, and proportions, body tone, and healthy appearance are taken into consideration. High-intensity weight training and hard, lean muscles are not necessary. The emphasis is on a well-shaped, fit, healthy and attractive appearance, similar to that of models.

Competitors are assessed in two rounds, wearing a two-piece bikini and high-heels. In both rounds, quarter-turns, including front, back and both sides stance, are performed. As well, the final round begins with “I-walking”, which gives each competitor a chance to present her body and her charm on the move.

Bodyfitness has been implemented by the IFBB in 2002 to give a chance to compete for a wide group of shapely women without the routine rounds, just the physique ones. This formula has proved to be useful and the number of participating competitors increases each year. Later on, IFBB created for them the possibility to show their figure in motion during a short individual onstage presentation called “I-walking”.

Currently, there are two rounds of quarter turns in the bikini-style costume of their own choice and classic stiletto pump of any color. At the beginning of Round 2 (finals) top 6 competitors perform individual “I-walking” presentations and then quarter turns as a group

This IFBB division was introduced with the beginning of 2013 for women who want to prepare heavier, bodybuilding-style body but not extremely dried, lean and muscular, yet athletic and aesthetically pleasing.

Assessing of the physique, judging criteria and rounds are the same as Women’s Bikini Fitness. Competitors perform quarter turns in all rounds plus individual “I-walking” presentation in the finals. Vertical proportions (legs to upper body length) are ones of the key factors. Horizontal proportions (hips and waist to shoulder width) may favor women with a bit bigger hips, thighs and buttocks
